A few weeks back some news portals were wrongfully reporting that two separate actors were in line to be the lead in director Pawan Kriplani’s next horror-comedy TANTRIK. But we can finally put all that hearsay to bed and reveal that actor Saif Ali Khan has been locked to play the lead in the movie now. The movie, a horror-comedy set in and around Mumbai city, will begin filming sometime next year and the director has apparently had a series of meetings with the actor already on the same. The movie is said to be backed by Fox Star Studios and the makers are going to lock a leading lady for the movie very soon. Saif is currently seeing a purple patch and currently filming the second season for SCARED GAMES in Mumbai city and his next biggie with Ajay Devgn in TANAJI as well. Watch out for an official announcement very shortly.
